on my site I log every pageview (date,ip,referrer,page,etc) in a simple mysql table.
This table gets very little selects (3 per minute), but a lot of inserts. (about 100 per second)
Today I changed this table from an InnoDB table to a MEMORY table, this made sense to me to prevent unnecessary hard disk IO. I also prune this table once per minute, to make sure it never get's too big.
Performance wise, things are running fine. But I noticed that while running tuning-primer, that my Current Lock Wait ratio is quite high.
Current Lock Wait ratio = 1 : 561
My question: Should I worry about this Lock Wait Ratio? And is there something I can change in my my.cnf to improve things so that the lock wait ratio isn't so high?
